Abstract

O-Acetyl oximes derived from 2′-arylacetophenones undergo N-O bond cleavage/intramolecular N-arylation in the presence of a catalytic amount of iron(III) acetylacetonate in acetic acid. In combination with the conventional cross-coupling or directed C-H arylation, the reaction offers a convenient route to substituted phenanthridines.
